Lollipop Dreams

Lollipop dreams
creep slowly
cautiously
carefully
don’t want to get
the brain all sticky
in to the night

It crosses the moon
blocking out the white
light
with the translucent red
total eclipse

In the end
the dream
creeps
louder
more insidiously
from a trickle
to a stream
eventually becoming
tidlewave
